The Harry Potter Books Continue to Fascinate Young Readers

The Potterhead energy is thriving!

It is amazing to see Harry Potter transcend time and space as it continues to captivate the minds and hearts of today’s young people. 10 year-old me never would have thought that she’d be recommending (with vehemence!) the same mysterious book, adorned with a boy on a broomstick, to kids 20 years later.

Today, millions (billions?) of adults and children deemed themselves hard-core Potterheads! You would be hard pressed to find someone who has never heard of Hogwarts, Professor Dumbledore, or Hermione Granger. As these books get passed on from the children, who experienced waiting oh-so patiently for the next book’s release date, to their own children, the level of fandom remains on the rise. It’s quite a beautiful thing really.

Harry Potter Fandom Extends Beyond Reading the Books

The Harry Potter gift ideas presented here are inspired by the way Potterheads show off their love for Harry Potter’s world beyond the books.

The fandom extends well beyond reading the books themselves. Many people have become fans of the movies and have never read the books. Others love the concept of a wizarding world and seek to live in its magic through attending themed events and Harry Potter World. When I was in college, there was a legit Quidditch team where people ran around with a broomstick between their legs! Fun!

Another way Potterheads love to show their love for the boy with the lightning scar is through themed decor, clothing, stationary, and unique gift items. Who doesn’t want a Slytherin sweater to show off, with pride, the Hogwarts house they belong to? Certainly not just me!

If You Are Looking for A Book Gift for a Harry Potter Fan..

Sometimes the best gifts to give are BOOKS. If you are shopping for a Harry Potter fanatic who loves to read, what better gift to give than another book. Lucky for you, I’ve created a book list all about what to read after Harry Potter!

This book list contains some of the finest standalone books and book series that any Harry Potter fan is sure to love! Some of our favorites are Keeper of the Lost Cities book series by Shannon Messenger and The School for Good and Evil book series by Soman Chainani! Check it out!
